Deep Application Visibility for Smarter Tools

Analytics tools are only as smart as the data they receive. Gigamon Application Metadata Intelligence empowers your security information and event management (SIEM) and network performance monitoring tools with critical metadata attributes across thousands of business, consumer and IT applications. It provides the deep application visibility needed to rapidly pinpoint performance bottlenecks and potential network security risks.

A core component of Gigamon Application Intelligence, Application Metadata Intelligence helps you effectively monitor and manage the complex digital applications at the heart of your digital transformation initiatives.

  • Generates more than 5,000 application-related metadata elements powered by deep packet inspection
  • Provides metadata depth for monitoring components within multi-tiered digital applications
  • Includes prebuilt connectors to leading security and analytics tools, including Splunk, IBM QRadar and FireEye
  • Dynamically detects new and modified metadata attributes and enables immediate downloads and library updates with no software version changes required

Improve Application Performance and Network Security

Application Metadata Intelligence provides deep visibility and context into applications — including usage, content and behavior — so you can get ahead of emerging security threats or customer-experience issues.

  • Monitoring user experiences: Get the details behind bottlenecks and outages. How did the application perform for the user? Was the video HD or was it low-resolution?
  • Troubleshooting a problematic app: How much data was retrieved from this MongoDB tier? How long did the response take?
  • Improving security posture: Did the user download an executable over Facebook Messenger? What is inside the file?
  • Supporting forensic analysis and reducing shadow IT: What files are being sent over YouSendIt? Who is using Ares for peer-to-peer sharing?

Application Metadata Intelligence can be easily shared with SIEM tools, internal IT systems and other analytics tools. We arm these tools with hard-to-find, specific application information to do their jobs far more effectively.
